ON THIS DAY - 1969: Small step becomes giant leap

GENERAL - 1969 was the year in which one person performed one small step for a man, but a giant leap for mankind. Although in the public eye the first ever moon landing by human beings may rank as one of the greatest achievements of mankind, consider this: 43 years ago to this day, the Internet was ‘officially born’. Ask yourself how many times since you have visited a) the moon b) the Internet.
